(Pertaining to the temperature change VS CO2 graph) "Notice the exponential curve that is now a completely virticle line. That is worrying IMHO."

The story behind the link you posted from Environment News Service News Wire said no such thing. It does not dispute nor mention the temperature anomaly data chart posted by HowardRoark (which originates from the website of Richard Muller, PhD, UofC at Berkeley).
And it would still emit CO2. Burn any hydrocarbon and the best you can achieve is CO2. If we truly wanted to reduce CO2 instead of only maintain the current levels, zero CO2 emissions would be required.
1.5% is incorrect. Rounding to 380 PPMV (Parts Per Million by Volume), that equates to 0.038% atmospheric CO2. Can anyone tell me how 0.038% of CO2 has enough heat capacity to warm the other 999,000+ PPM (99.962%)of the atmosphere?
The American Chemistry Council and others challenged data used by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) as it sought to ban wood treated with heavy metals and arsenic in playground equipment.
Logging groups challenged Forest Service calculations used to justify restrictions on timber harvests.
Sugar interests challenged the Agriculture Department and the Food and Drug Administration over dietary recommendations to limit sugar intake.
The Salt Institute and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce challenged data that led the National Institutes of Health to recommend that people cut back on salt.
The Nickel Development Institute and other nickel interests challenged a government report on the hazards of that metal.
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers petitioned the CPSC to retract data that ranked the risk of lint fires in various clothes dryers.
Peer review (known as refereeing in some academic fields) is a scholarly process used in the publication of manuscripts and in the awarding of funding for research. Publishers and funding agencies use peer review to select and to screen submissions. The process also assists authors in meeting the standards of their discipline. Publications and awards that have not undergone peer review are liable to be regarded with suspicion by scholars and professionals in many fields.
I believe there is no energy crisis, only a political one.
